Greek Australian guitarist Orianthi released her new album, “O,” on November 6, 2020, and has struck a chord with young audiences. The album was Orianthi’s first new studio album in seven years and her first new music as a solo artist in six years.

“The album ‘O’ is a very inspired album. … Kept things pretty raw and didn’t overthink it. Marti (Frederiksen, producer, mixer, songwriter) and I wanted to create a unique sound and vibe with every track and we experimented a lot with synths and different guitar tones,” Orianthi said.

“Lyrically, a lot of this record comes from life experience and other people’s stories. It’s going to be so fun to play these songs live!”

The platinum-selling recording artist’s first major solo success was with the Geffen Records release of “According To You,” which is now RIAA-certified Platinum and has over 17 million streams on Spotify.

Orianthi was also previously named by Elle magazine as one of the 12 Greatest Female Electric Guitarists.

Orianthi’s father, a former Greek guitarist, had a major influence in her music career. Her father and grandmother taught Orianthi the importance of being family-oriented and attending family functions, and just sitting down and eating dinner together.
